My work concentrates on my fascination how our image and knowledge about the world is affected by media images. How the media images create our collective memory and how they can create an image of a place you have never been or an event you didn’t attend. I’m interested in how an image is constructed, which imagery is used and where the image refers to. With my work I want to show the viewer that there are rules and codes that affect the way we look at images.
